AAAAARRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!

I’m gonna die by Stroke or Heart Attack long before Medicare lets me go to the f’in hospital! I am so irritated by this whole Medicare process, it’s an experience you have to actually participate in to understand. Let me tell you the story . . .

For the past 35 – 40 years I have had Kaiser Hospital for my medical coverage. At 65 Kaiser kicks you out requiring you go get Medicare, does not matter if you are retired or not. So, I contact Medicare, they provide me with Medicare part A and B. But when I get the paperwork on it, I don’t have Kaiser. My part B is some weird Insurance company back east. I don’t want this, I want Kaiser. I tell them I do not want the part B they have given me, that I want Kaiser. They tell me I can change it when open enrollment starts again. I tell them I don’t want their bullshit part B and I’m not going to pay for it. So, after a few months of my not paying for it they kill my part B instead of giving me Kaiser. Have I pointed out, I’m not even retired yet.

Of course, you know what happens next . . . I enjoy a motorcycle accident, WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE. I end up in the hospital with a broken ankle, broken hip, smashed up face, and stuck in a hospital 35 miles from home. Did I mention I had no health insurance? Well the doctors at the hospital figured it out before I did, and they didn’t want to do a damn thing for me. They had me down in x-ray, took pictures, saw what was wrong and didn’t put a cast on my ankle, required I purchase a $95.00 walker before I could check out, and did nothing for the dislocated shoulder that I didn’t know was dislocated but they did. So, I get myself put into a debt I do not need:

  • Central Valley Imaging . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $678.49
  • UCSF Medical Center . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$5153.00
  • AMR Global Medical Response . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..$3044.91
    • . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$8876.40

Plus I’ve lost my beautiful 1998 Harley Road King to a Tow yard someplace in San Jose that lien sales it a week later. I took about a 10k hit losing the bike but that doesn’t piss me off near as much as Medicare.

You see, in addition to Medicare fucking with me, the medical bills, and the pain enjoyed as part of the accident. I was also found responsible for the accident, so my insurance didn’t pay shit. But, it even gets worse.

I get telephone calls between 10 and 30 per day, starting at 6:00 AM from Senior Life and Medicare Benefits trying to get me to get me to buy my Medicare C and D from them. It DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU GET OFF THEIR LIST ONE DAY, you are back on it the next. And get this, none of the phone numbers called from are working numbers.

As for Medicare, you irresponsible muther-fuckers can kiss my ass. My shoulder is still dislocated since July 7, 2022, I am diabetic having vision problems, and I feel like shit. Did I mention that I have had about 11 strokes? Anyway, fuck off, I would rather die than keep fucking around with you folks.

Oh, I got a letter from Kaiser yesterday telling me they couldn’t be my medical provider because I don’t have a Medicare Part B. I call Social Security who tells me I can have my Part B, but I have to pay the period that they had me on Part B to now even though I declined it and never used it. At about $150.00 per month, sure I’ll just run out and pay that today. And after my monthly comes out of my retirement when I retire, Social Security will give me about $550.00 per month to live on.

And, I am still not retired.

Don’t ya’all get all concerned about me. I’m just ranting caused I’m pissed off and frustrated as hell and like everything else . . . I’ll get over it.

Why Do White Lives Matter?

To answer this question you need to know what you are talking about. And before you suggest that I am wrong, you need to do a little research, to discover the real truth. Before I start this article, I want you to know that I do not support racism in any way. Equality, fairness, and social harmony; yes, racism; no.

Okay first: The Washington Post database that demonstrates that the population of Black people in the U.S. is approximately 13 percent. This is true, but misleading because believe it or not there are places in the U.S. that don’t have Black people. If you compare the populations of many of our major cities, the Black population ranges anywhere from 23 to over 60 percent. Using those same population figures there are more White people killed by Police than Black people. Before you get all up in your stuff to tell me I am wrong, go look at the data. Knowing this fact is not the big deal you may believe it is. Knowing this fact and wondering why our government, clergy, educators, and people we trust aren’t doing the research and telling us the truth is the big deal.

And second: Black Lives Matter, the organization was made to support a gay sports player, had nothing to do with supporting the Black population at all, and had no intent to do so. Having the right name and being in the right place at the right time allowed these people to take advantage of White Corporate America that in fear dumped millions of dollars in donations while BLM founders scooped it up, laughing it up as they were suddenly rich. BLM was not there to support George Floyd. They were there to grab misdirected money and did so. Since that day BLM people have done nothing to support Black people. They have however, joined the ranks of the “rich and famous.”

And third: The claims that Black people do not have opportunity as the Whites is another lie not adequately researched by anybody to make such claim. The data is available but not yet collected adequately to make a true determination. However, what data is available paints a very different picture. My interest in this topic came about from a situation in which a sports team hired a temporary head coach with no experience over a Black Assistant Coach and the media erupted with claims of racism. Looking at the sports organization I discovered that not only do they report the racial figurers for Players and Coaches but they also provide racial figures for damn near every employee of the Organization. Black Players made up from 60 to 80 percent of the Organizations Players, Black Coaches made up roughly 35 percent of the coaching staff. This prompted my delving into the topic further, so I reviewed “entertainment.” Who is the big loser in this topic? Asians! Blacks scored 25 to 35 percent in a majority of media and entertainment occupations. Again, knowing this fact is not the big deal you may believe it is. Knowing this fact and wondering why our government, clergy, educators, and people we trust aren’t doing the research and telling us the truth is the big deal. Going back to the 13 percent rule . . . what percentage of these jobs?

The point I am trying to show you is we are being fed lies with intent to create racial disharmony, and we are falling for it. Aren’t you tired of being lied to? Right now coast-to-coast in America our Government and Organizations are giving benefits to Black people while precluding Whites opportunity for the same benefit. Corporate America is telling their Hiring Managers not to hire White people. Do you really believe that Black people are the only race suffering the lower economy levels. Even if the entire 13 percent Black people were at such level, which they are not. There are at least an equal number of Whites suffering the same issues. And you have to ask, “do White Lives Matter.”

They are giving these benefits to Blacks and Others, excluding Whites under guise of fairness to the Black race. But what they are actually doing is building a whole new racism. This is the bottom of our economy levels. Do you think it fair one race benefit while another doesn’t? Another thing this situation does is highlight the true problem. Our Government is STUPID and cannot figure out the need for color-blindness in Government. To become color-blind requires maturing enough to seek fairness and equality regardless skin color. Really not that hard to do.

We need to stop living these lies. Don’t believe me. Do the research yourself. If you are in an occupation in which you are carrying these lies forward, quit your job or do the research to find the truth. All Lives Matter lets accept that and move forward.

Damn, I Wish I Weren’t White . . .

A Washington Examiner headline, “Poll shows hiring managers discriminating against white men” caught my eye this morning. It comes at a time when being a White man seems a little unpopular. But is it fair? If the Black percentage of the population is around 13 percent, doesn’t that mean they should have about 13 percent of the jobs?

In the 2015-2016 television season, 74.6 percent of roles for cable scripted shows went to white actors, whilst 13.3 percent went to black actors, and just 2.6 percent to Asian actors.” Okay, this seems about right, or does it?

The majority of TV newsroom employees in the United States in 2020 were white, with African American staff and Hispanic and Latino employees making up less than 25 percent of the total. The survey projected that the share of Hispanic and Latino employees would increase slightly in 2021 but the forecasted percentage remains under 13 percent.” Somebody works with the same math I do.

  
Employed persons by detailed occupation, sex, race, and Hispanic origin <-This link goes to the actual data page


  Officials and administrators, public administration..............................      720     52.6      13.0         
    Administrators, protective services............................................       54     25.3      13.3    Inspectors and compliance officers, except construction............................      247     36.4      14.4
  Dietitians.......................................................................       74     90.2      18.7
 Prekindergarten and kindergarten..................................................      647     97.7      14.7
Social, recreation, and religious workers..........................................    1,556     57.3      17.4             Social workers......................................................................     848     74.0      22.7       Recreation workers.................................................................      129     74.2      20.5 

And, I can keep going down the list. The end column at the far right is the percentage of Black people in that occupation. Don't take my word for it, follow the link above to go to the actual data page. My point is Black people actually populate our workforce in some very good numbers. Add professional sports players and entertainers figures to this and I believe you will find that Black people have a bunch of the good paying jobs, exceeding the 13 percent  discussed above.

Now, we go and turn the apple-cart upside down because folks out there are making their living off of racism telling people that are too lazy a bunch of lies and unfairly taking jobs from the White man. I find this offensive as fuck!

I have never taken any opportunity away from anybody. Never owned a slave. Don't care what color your skin is. And, I have never taken the food off another mans table based on the color of his skin. Corporate America is afraid off the Black man, so instead of doing the right thing and ensuring that their hiring practices are color-blind, they turn around and do the opposite and create a new racial issue.

Listen up folks . . . We are where we are today because folks are making money off racism, and we keep letting them do it. It's not hard to recognize men as equals and if you can mature enough to be color-blind most issues will resolve themselves. Folks out there that can't mature to that level, are the problem. They come in all colors and they aren't helping nobody, but themselves at our expense. Corporations, Politicians, Government is so busy trying to make new racial issues that they can't see they are the problem. If they would have treated men as equals a long time ago, we would be in a much better place today . . . 

The State of America . . .

I read an article in a news publication today in which people were asked to say what they thought of the state of America today using one word. Let it suffice to say, there were very few favorable responses and no visible argument to the negativity noted. Why? What has happened to America? Has America become both financially and morally bankrupt? Has the Pandemic destroyed the heart of America? Has racial divide and failure of us to educate our young brought about the end of peace on our streets? What exactly has happened to America?

The Pandemic brought about a lot of loss. Family, friends, and neighbors suddenly were sick or dead. We were unable to be in close contact with others which for many is a human need. When we did go out into the community again it waws with a mask covering our face. Our neighbors and friends fought over this requirement in public stores and streets largely because of misinformation passed on social media. Dis-trust of our Government grew significantly day-by-day, and nothing could be done to stop the downhill trend not to believe in Government. This dis-trust continues today because our Government to date has failed to identify the source of the Covid-19 virus that almost killed a Nation that has done nothing to discover the reasons why.

A Nation of unemployed supported by Government with far too much time on their hands as Pandemic restrictions eased allowed the growth of criminal activity on our streets, followed by the unfortunate death of George Floyd while in police custody on a public street brought racial tensions to the top of our Nations issues as well as the crippling of our police departments across the Nation. Presently, crime has increased to such a degree that our city streets are unsafe even during daylight hours Police Officers disheartened by cries of the public to “defund the police” and the inability of Government to acquire enough recruits to fill the required police officer employees, has left police departments unable to meet the challenges of fighting crime in our neighborhoods to the extreme that store closures are necessary due to rampant theft.

Inmates that were released from our prisons and jails control our streets with the help of local street thugs that even when law enforcement catches them, are back on the streets within hours leaving the community living in fear. People that had previously lived a life of lawful living suddenly found the only way to prosper in life was to take what you wanted, has begun to do so. Even in the best of neighborhoods, crime riddles the streets and fear of “home-invasion” is real While it has in the past been offensive to declare “martial law” to protect the community, may become necessity in the near future.

Failure of “gun owners” to properly secure their weapons continues to be a primary factor in many school mass shootings, and other shootings of our children. And, no matter how loud it is hollered people still cannot hear our pleas to “please secure your guns.” Our Government still fails to prosecute gun owners for the mis-use of their guns by others, even when negligence by the gun owner is obvious continues. Parents as well as children fear school days and wait for the dreaded call of an incident at their local schools. On the adult venue, people no longer feel safe attending events such as concerts, fairs, or even movies.

I have to stop writing this. The negativity compiled by simply writing this thus far, hurts. Where is this headed? How and to what degree are we going to have to go to defend ourselves? This is not the America I grew up in nor the America our children should live in. You see, the previous paragraphs written are just the tips of the ice-berg. I could write for days on this topic and not repeat the same concern twice. I’m unsure of whom to point a finger at to blame for the state of America today, without the finger eventually pointing back at myself, as in all of us. And to make things even worse, I cannot think of a single thing to say good on this topic . . .

Can you? Feel free to comment below.

They Should Charge These Parents With Murder!

I know I may be sounding a little extreme but give it a moments thought. What better way to get rid of you children, then to leave 3 young children home alone with a loaded shotgun? As a matter of fact wouldn’t that also make a great lead-in for a Horror Movie. But this isn’t some movie theme, it’s real. Now, one child will have to live the nightmare of killing their sibling, for the rest of his life. In the news article a Texas 10-year-old boy has shot his 8-year-old brother with a shotgun, killing him. Their 13-year-old brother was there and called 911.

Think of the drama these lives will have to deal with. The 13-year-old will forever believe himself responsible for his brothers death because we all know we are responsible for our younger siblings. Then 10-year-old will forever carry the guilt because he is the one that shot the 8-year-old. But who is actually responsible for the death of this boy and the harm it does to the other two boys?

In case you are having difficulty pointing the finger at the guilty party in this case . . . It’s the adult that brought the gun into the home, and left it loaded and unsecured for children to gain access to it. I know somebody out there is going to say, “They’ve suffered enough, they have lost a child.” 3 children’s lives are destroyed and you think they should go unpunished because their negligence is the cause of it?

Charge them with MURDER and treat it like they murdered somebody else’s child. Just think, all they had to do was secure the weapon where the children would not have access to it, or unload it, or add a trigger lock. A $25.00 trigger lock or putting it where a kid can’t get to it, and an 8-year-old boy would be alive right now.

Oh, a link to the news story https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/ten-year-old-boy-accidentally-shoots-and-kills-eight-year-old-brother-with-shotgun-in-texas/ar-AA13pgex?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=b8d84143da404e58bc8ba9de87389350

Racism in Progress – Reparations

USA Article this morning: Most Black people want reparations. They don’t believe America will give them any

Reparations do nothing to end racism. Reparations do nothing but give to a single class of people and disregards all other issues that stem from racism. Are we going to end racism by giving wealth to Black people that could be used to benefit all races, or are we going to create a class of person that is elite and government-made wealthy just on the color of their skin.

Before we consider reparations to anyone shouldn’t we look at how racism affected everyone. Black people believe they were the only race subject to harm in the past. How many Black people have been lynched in support of White people? During the Civil War, how many White People gave their lives in support of abolishing slavery? My point is not to diminish the loss of Black people brought upon due to slavery, but to demonstrate Black people have made no progress in achieving equality on their own. In order for Black people to enjoy the freedom they enjoy today, a whole bunch of White people has had to willingly sacrifice their lives, their families, and their futures to help Black people get here.

Do Black people give credit to those that have worked in support of their cause? Then why are reparations for Black people even being considered instead of reparations for all those that have suffered due to slavery? Don’t you see, reparations is nothing less than a continuation of racism that will negatively affect generations to come.

For reference: ” Lynching was not a crime committed exclusively against black people. Between the 1830s and the 1850s the majority of those lynched in the United States were whites. From 1882-1968, some 4,743 lynchings occurred in the United States (not all lynchings were recorded). Of these, 3,446 or 73 percent were black and 1,297 (27 percent) were white.”

You cannot fight racism, giving to one while another suffers. Slavery has happened numerous times in history and all races have suffered from it. Look at America today. People of all races , colors, and creeds are suffering. I look down my street and I see everyone suffering from low incomes, lack of work, lack of opportunity. It is not just Blacks, it is everybody. If you want to fix America, quit trying to fix just a single skin color.

Hot Topic: Officer’s Immunity

DOES ANYONE UNDERSTAND WHY THERE IS IMMUNITY FOR PEACE OFFICERS? They are granted certain immunity so they can just go out there shoot stupid !@#$& that holds still long enough to get shot. Everybody seems to think the only one responsible for most of this so let’s make the cops more liable and require the cops get more training that won’t fix the problem.

Where the liability needs to go is to the citizen. Why are people allowed to resist and fight with cops? Do you really think that cop is getting paid well enough to have to fight some idiot every day? Do you realize that it is still legal to shoot a fleeing felon in certain parts of this country? And, you only have to suspect he committed a felony? As far as training goes, parents why are your children fighting and running from the law? Parents need to stop blaming cops for your childs poor decision-making skills. Isn’t this country screwed up enough? Our parent’s parents took responsibility for their stoopids and fails, why can’t we? And at this rate or children’s children won’t have to accept responsibility for anything. Of course, that will be our failure.

Cops DO NOT just grab an innocent person slam him to the ground and shove a knee in their back. Okay it doesn’t happen like that most the time. Usually, in order to end up dropped to the ground, you had to do something. And probably what you did was scared the cop by acting like an ass instead of doing what the cop told you to do. And this just comes back to your parents not teaching you good decision-making skills.

If a cop comes at you for a crime you didn’t commit, do you:

1.) Argue and fight with the cop, getting your ass whipped and pissing the cop off more because you tear his uniform?

2.) Or, do you cooperate with the officer, allow the arrest, call an attorney as soon as you can and file suit for false arrest? Without getting your ass hurt or shot.

AND MOST POLICE DEPARTMENTS DON’T EVEN TRY TO GET YOUR CASE IN COURT, THEY JUST PAY YOU TO SETTLE.

Now, If ya’all was paying attention I just learned you something that your parents likely failed to learn ya growing up. You are as responsible as that cop if you end up with your ass tossed to the ground and believe it or not real men accept responsibility for their actions, as you should teach your children.

“Lord please save us from our own stoopidity” (Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose)

Black Lives Matter – Money Matters

“The leader of the national Black Lives Matter group has been accused of stealing more than $10 million from the charity’s donors.” Is the leading line in an article I read in MSN’s news app this evening.

Folks DO NOT understand that Black Lives Matter had nothing to do with George Floyd. BLM was originally formed to support a gay athelete. There was no support of the Black Community at all. One of the original Leaders of the BLM is a Political Activist. BLM was just in the right place, at the right time. When the unrest subsequent to George Floyd’s death kicked-off and Corporate America started wetting their britches they looked for someone to pay in hopes of self preservation. BLM was there and it’s name alone made it seem the logical choice. Corporate America gave 90 million dollars to a group of people that don’t give a damn about Black people. But, BLM got the money and they know how to spend it.

How many people could of benefitted from the 10 million dollars? ONE! You would think a lot more, but BLM was not established with any such goals in mind. Their goal seems only to scrape bits and peices of the cash off for individual gain. Shortly after Georrge Floyd one of the other BLM Leaders bought herself a bunch of high value multi-million dollar homes.

BLM is living evidence of an organization absolutly making a living by promotion of racism, while claiming to support others. And Corporate America (the wise busness men that they are) went right out and paid these frauds to promote racism and neglect the cause they claimed to support. What seems the worse part of this situation is that the Black Community is allowing the BLM Leaders to continue their failure.

It is really a shame that these common “street-hudlums” ended up with all this cash. What does this say of White America? Does White America fear the Black Man? That much? And, does anyone care to know the truth about the lies that continue about Blacks being treated worse than others.

When you decide that you really want to put an end to racism, mature enough to become color-blind so that skin color does not factor into decisions made, support services offered, and anything else that should not be race relative, isn’t! It really isn’t that hard to do . . .

Union Created & Sanctioned Racism . . .

Minneapolis teachers Union seems to believe that laying off employees should be based upon skin color. And for you folks that are stuck in the old definition of racism that believe it can’t be racism if it is against white people, definitions change daily. If the same act was done by a White person to a person of color and it considered racism, then it’s racism. As a matter of fact, any policy that includes a race should be considered unlawful and unethical as they promote racism. If your goal is the end of racism quit using race in any form.

The thing that is most true of policies like this. Thier intent is to take from one group of people and give it to another, and the people writing the policy will not be effected by it.

Minneapolis has been going crazy over this topic for the past few days. It is a shame that common sense hasn’t been brought into the situation. Common sense dictates that the Teachers Union be disposed of to be replaced by an Association or Union that understands that the teachers that will be effected by such policy are not responsible for any wrong-doing in past hiring practices. Allowing asuch policy to effect a teacher that has senority within the system, that is already a qualified teacher, for a lesser qualified person is not only likely illegal, but also stupid.

There is nothing in this policy that does not promote racism, and our educational system should be the first to demonstrate and teach an end to racism. For a Teachers Union to support any race based policy is ridiculous. But, we have Government nation-wide doing similar acts. And, every one of them promotes racism.

What happens when you take from one and give to another? The one taken from suddenly starts to lose their tolerance and acceptance for others and sooner or later you have created a whole new reason for hate. We need to stop the ongoing hatred and distrust. But, not by getting rid of skilled educators.

Minneapolis needs to solve their unfair hiring practices, and I believe that means gedtting rid of their entire school board, replacing the board members with those that are truly concerned with ending racism. And do this before hiring or firing any teachers. I could write on this topic for hours. Nip the problem in the bud, where the problem exists. Then when you hire again, you hire people that do not support any form of racial disharmony. Then if you must get rid of existing teachers, get rid of those that do not support ending racism. You cannot make progress in the illimination of racism, until somebody takes a step gto make it happen.

Government Manufactured & Sanctioned Racism

The Mercury News ran an interesting story today about Alameda County being sued by an anti-affirmative action group because of their public contracts policy. Alameda County has a policy that gives a portion of their contracts to minority owned business. What this means is Alameda County instead of trying to eliminate racism, creates racism.

If the goal of Alameda County is to provide construction jobs to all races, they don’t need to. Construction right now is suffering from a shortage of workers, both skilled and unskilled. Most construction companies have a very diversified crew, of varying skillsets and color. Except minority owned construction companies. Many minority owned construction companies are comprised of a single race. That is pretty much the norm for many minority owned companies. Today most of the non-minority owned companies have a policy of hiring the person that can do the job, regardless skin color. Their hiring criteria is compitence in doing the job, which is as it should be. Reserving a portion of contracts for a minority owned company that serves to employ only a single race is nothing less than promotion of racism.

The link for the story is below . . .

Alameda County sued by anti-affirmative action group over public contracts policy

If you seriously want to fight racism, you don’t do so by creating racist policy. Any policy, any organization or anything else that favors one race over another serves but one purpose, the promotion of racism. To make matters worse, we have people writing policy that don’t care the impact of the policy, because they will never be subject of the policy. And if you look closely, you will see somebody making money by it. If an organization has a race as part of its name its purpose is to make money off of what may be a ledgitimate social injustice while not doing anything to fix the problem.

At some point, our society has to quit thinking that the way to fix racial issues is by taking from one race to give to another. That does not work. What we need is a solution in which race has no part of the solution. Government and Corporate America need to quit pandering to every race, develop a color-blindness that distributes resources or other benefit to people based upon need and to be fair to everyone involved.

If you look outside any door in any major city in America today, put your color-blind glasses on, and you will see America is in trouble. Everywhere you look there are people in need. People are suffering. Not just one race, every race has been given their share of the suffering. And. that is what needs be fixed. Quit trying to build more and more racism and fix the suffering of the people. There is no acceptable reason for people in America to not have adequate food or shelter today. If you took all the money from organizations that get rich off promoting racism and put it to use solving suffering, all the races would benefit and our society would improve significanty.

Alameda County’s policy regarding construction contracts is bullshit. It does nothing to fight racism, it does not serve the community, and will cause harm by serving one race over another. And, that is the real harm. That is the continuing racism that needs to be stopped.
